“Hey y’all as you know, I have been very open about my struggle with social anxiety. I want to continue to be healthy and to make music for y’all, so I have decided to cut down some of the dates on the tour. I’m grateful for every single one of you. I hope that you understand,” the Over It singer tweeted alongside a video where she spoke further on the canceled shows. Summer Walker added that the canceled tour dates will be refunded, while also letting fans know which dates are still happening.

Summer Walker canceling most of her remaining tour comes after she faced criticism from a fan for a meet-and-greet she did. A fan’s story where she called the singer’s meet-and-greet “anticlimactic and disappointing” went viral and forced the artist to respond.

“Now for those who’re upset b/c I don’t give hugs idk what to tell you…I’m an empath, and that transference of energy from that many people each day would literally KILL me.. y’all may not understand what I’m talking about but for example… there’s a lot of people out here faking the funk with a smile on their face like they got it together but inside your actually suffering from some sort of traumatic experience, a loss, depressed, fearful, envious or whatever the case may be BUT I CAN FEEL IT. So I ask you please respect my space in those moments,” she wrote on Instagram.
